What do healing and repair look like in sick bodies?  The Queer Toronto-based artist Sarah Mihara Creagen has been reflecting on this question in relation to her personal experiences of Crohn’s disease, which includes chronic illness, disability, surgery and long-term infusion medication.

In this talk and workshop, Sarah will visually explore modes of bioremediation, queer transformations through medication and relationships between plant time and crip time.
